Over the next month, the International Reading Association will phase out the social networking platform, Engage. But while the site itself (http://engage.reading.org) will be discontinued on November 1, 2012, the popular Engage/Teacher to Teacher blog will live on in a new, convenient format.
Under the new moniker, we will continue to bring you practical teaching tips, in-depth interviews, and posts from your favorite columnists, literacy leaders, and children’s literature authors.
Connecting the Engage blog with Reading Today Online helps us provide you with one-stop access to the dynamic content you’ve come to expect from the blog alongside the literacy news, book reviews, and important announcements you’ll find on Reading Today Online.
As we settle into our new home, we are on the lookout for new Engage contributors—and we’d love to hear from you! Send your submissions or ideas for future posts to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are one of Engage’s active bloggers, we want to encourage you to preserve the work you’ve previously published by moving your posts to a new platform, such as Blogger or WordPress, prior to November 1. After that date, you will no longer have access to the Engage site.
In order to make the process of saving your work and transferring it to a new blog or social media service, we’ve put together this step-by-step tutorial to walk you through the process. And if the thought of doing this seems daunting, take a look at Cathy Mere’s guide to successful blogging. It has everything you need (including encouragement) to make the move simple and painless.
